An IFC program that brings cutting-edge technologies to where they are needed most.
TechEmerge brings cutting-edge technologies to where they are needed most. This award-winning matchmaking program from the World Bank Group connects tech companies worldwide with leading organizations in emerging markets. Together we pilot projects uniquely tailored to local needs, supported by a global network of industry advisors, building commercial relationships in vital sectors, maximizing social impact, and spurring innovation.
India’s healthcare sector was the launching ground for TechEmerge. From 2016-17, our participants piloted 15 new solutions in diabetes care, women’s health, and other critical fields. Since then, one TechEmerge firm was acquired for $102 million, and the pipeline of contracts continues to grow - along with the health benefits for communities.
